Hormonal Health With HeLa ūüćÉ

Women, meet HeLa - your new ride or die 

For women, hormonal health is the foundation for overall well-being. Particularly for women navigating the complex phases of peri-menopause and menopause, it is extremely important to have an adequate intake of protein and fibre. During these phases, the body undergoes significant hormonal fluctuations and changes such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and weight gain. With these changes, a woman's diet can play a crucial role in managing problematic symptoms. Incorporating high-quality protein and fibre into your diet like HeLa Nutrition Organic Plant Protein Powder can be very beneficial. 

HeLa is here to Help 

Your Hormones LOVE Protein 

Protein is an essential macronutrient that supports various bodily functions and, provides the body with amino acids which are used to build hormones such as estrogen, thyroid hormone, and insulin. With 22 grams of plant protein per scoop, HeLa Nutrition Organic Plant Protein Powder offers a robust protein serving to add into your daily routine. 

Eating enough protein helps to:

  • Maintain healthy estrogen levels:¬†As estrogen levels drop, women are at risk of losing muscle mass - Protein helps maintain healthy estrogen levels to keep your muscles strong¬†
  • Improve metabolism:¬†Protein helps to improve your body's efficiency at burning calories. It also reduces cravings and promotes steady energy throughout the day.
  • Support blood sugar balance:¬†During menstruation, pregnancy, peri-menopause, and menopause, it is common for our mood and energy levels to fluctuate. Protein helps stabilize blood sugars, which can prevent mood swings and provide a steady source of energy.
  • Support bone health:¬†Protein aids in maintaining bone density and reducing the risk of osteoporosis, which is heightened during menopause.¬†

Plant Protein for the Win!

Diets rich in plant protein have been found to reduce estrogen overload, balance hormones, and decrease perimenopausal symptoms such as hot flashes.

Fibre is your Hormonal BFF

Fibre is crucial for women's health, particularly during hormonal changes. HeLa Nutrition Organic Plant Protein Powder has 5 grams of fibre per scoop, which helps to keep your hormones happy. 

Fibre is key for:

  • Digestion and regular bowel movements: Fibre¬†is vital to eliminating excess estrogen metabolites, which can be harmful. Constipation can be common during menopause, so fibre is critical.¬†
  • Stabilizing¬†blood sugar levels: Fibre regulates the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream which prevents blood sugar spikes, avoids insulin resistance, and aids with weight management.¬†

 

Say Goodbye to Sugar

Consuming sugar disrupts insulin, leading to high estrogen and testosterone levels. This imbalance causes irritability, anxiety, insomnia, acne, hair loss, and mood swings. Sugar can also contribute heavily to weight gain and fatigue. 

  • HeLa Nutrition Organic Plant Protein contains no added sugar and is sweetened only with monk fruit. Monk fruit has zero calories and doesn't raise your blood sugar.¬†¬†

No Hormone Disruptors Here!

Pesticides have been found to be hormone disruptors, meaning that they mimic, block, or interfere with the body's hormones.

  • As HeLa Nutrition Organic Plant Protein powders are organic, no pesticides are used in growing the plants in our HeLa blend.
